we are both glass artists, but he stunned and surprised me by actually MAKING my ring. It’s white gold, silver and rose gold. the bezel setting and inside are pure rose Gold. The style is called “mokume gane”. The same way they make samurai swords! :). He was able to make a billet with enough metal for all three rings. He spent about $1000 on the raw materials, and countless hours of work (Including “practice” billets and rings)We are making his and my bands this summer. He’s thinking about putting glass aside for awhile (been doing it over ten years) and focusing on precious metals. I completely support that :):)
The diamond was my grandmothers- .95ctw
I am one lucky lady 🙂

It’s incredible, what a piece of art!
I’ve always wanted a mokume ring, but it’s way out of budget. You are one lucky girl!

Amazing! That makes it so much more special! Beautiful ring, too. He must love you a lot to actually make your ring himself! I’ll bet you’re really proud.

WHAT? You didn’t brood about your ring, complain about it, say “it wasn’t what I wanted”, complain that it wasn’t a surprise, whine about how long you had to wait for it, etcetcetcetcetcetc?
This sounds like a match made in Heaven!
One of my college friend’s husband made her ring, with a similar result to yours- the ring was absolutely gorgeous and she was over the moon with love and joy and pride with how much the ring meant to her.
Blessings to you, and may every day of your married life be as beautiful as the day you received your beautiful ring’
